    Today, a whole bunch of LEB hosts sent out an email similar to this:

    Dear Customer,
    
    Over the past few months we have been met with many challenges within the hosting business. Some that have not been overcome.
    
    As result of this we will be closing our doors.  We will be shutting down this Monday 12/9/2019.  We are taking this time to let our customers know so that they may backup and retrieve all of their data before then.
    
    We deeply apologize for this inconvenience.
    
    Thank You.

      While it was 100% totally expected from them, still have to give them credit for not disappearing suddenly without chance to recover your data.

      At least they didn't deadpool overnight and am giving people until Monday to pull everything off their VPSs..

    • The question is how soon would they be back and under what name?

      This is a very good point, it has given me time to alert the people who are on my free shitty shithost experiment to backup their miners and spam scripts lol

      t0ny0 said: None of the LEB crap affects me, aside from learning to never ever ever EVER EVER trust a host that provides services by ColoCrossing.

      Why is that?

      All these hosts are deadpooling within three days of announcing they are shutting down. 17 out of 18 of these hosts were featured on LEB within the past 2 months offering yearly contracted services. I guarantee no one is getting refunds from this (aside from charging back, which I suggest everyone starts considering right about now). Let me know if you're still having any issues seeing why no one trusts LEB/CC.
